New York City Subway Token Cufflinks
Set in sterling silver, these are officially licensed New York City Subway tokens. The subway fare was a nickel for the first 44 years, and a dime for the next 5 years. In 1953, the fare was set to rise to 15 cents, but engineers couldn't design a turnstile that would accept 2 different coins. This, the token was born. With the introduction of the versatile MetroCard, tokens were retired. These are officially licensed New York Subway tokens made by Tokens & Icons of California.
